Erin and Angela of Sterling Social introduced me to Danielle and Randy on a crisp evening in Los Angeles. They welcomed me into their stylish home and was greeted by their cat, who rubbed his body against my pants as he meandered by. We spent the first half of the meeting simply talking about life, […]

Every year I post a end-of-the-wedding-season blog post highlighting photos from our new annual portfolio. While I love it, I realized it lacked a certain panache, so I looked for ways to make my efforts dynamic and engaging…specifically as a way to attract new clients.
